  1. Latour’s first two issues didn’t get me to care about his story and new direction for Bucky. I’ll hold on 2-3 more issues out of loyalty to the character. Hopefully it picks up by then. I wasn’t expecting him to match Brubaker stylistically, but was hoping to see him come close to matching his quality.

    • I’m the same way… and more importantly, I’m really having a tough time understanding what’s going on. I think it might’ve been a bad move to introduce all these brand new characters right after the transition. I’ll probably ride out this arc (not even sure on that) because I’m a big Winter Soldier fan, but after that, barring improvement, I’m out.

  2. My subscription ends soon.

    In for the first arc, then I’ll read the library’s trades, if it’s good.

  3. I really liked this issue. Loved the big old Fury head thing. Loved the existential musings of Bucky. Really like this character, wish this book much success.

    • I agree, I’ve been enjoying Latour and Klein’s take on Bucky. They have kept the spirit that Brubaker established with the character, but they’ve also upped the pulpy/sci-fi aspects, I hope sales are good enough to keep this around. Klein’s artwork has been absolutely fantastic, along with the excellent coloring, it gives the book a great style that fits in with the story perfectly.

    • @TurdSandwich: Klein is coloring the book as well. He prefers to be really hands on with his art.
